     Computerworld has listed the top 10 "gone but not forgotten" computer operating systems, which includes GEOS!  Also in the batch are
CP/M (for you C128 fans) and AmigaOS (for Ami aficionados).  Go to

http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&taxonomyName=Operating+Systems&articleId=9129459&taxonomyId=89&pageNumber=1

to read the details and to go to the screenshots of the various operating systems.

           Truly,

I do so miss OS/2 Warp V3.  Thanks for posting this link. 

It should be noted that OS/2 eventually evolved into what became Windows XP and Vista.  Proof can be found in the fact that both of these are based on Windows 2000, which itself is based on Windows NT 4, which can actually run native OS/2 applications, as Windows NT was Microsoft's offshoot of OS/2.

Not that this has anything to do with 8 bit Commodores, except for the fact that I was (and am) a self-confessed GEOS "Fanboy."  Wink

I was never into Geos when it was first released. I have started using Geos 2 a bit  early this year. CP/M also had limited release for the 64 and I have tried it once in the 80's. I also located one earlier this year and have started with it a bit. I have seen a few sites that have stuff that will run on the 128 version. Anyone here know of a spot to find a way to transfer a few programs into the 64 version? or on the subject where to find the manual for the 64 CP/M? mine had the original disks with it and the cartridge but no manual.

I believe this is what you're looking for Smiley
